13th Floor Elevators The Psychedelic Sounds of... MONO Edition LP LP 5218

Categories: Specialty:Music - Added on September 17, 2012 - # 127934

For the first time in 40 years, here it is in dangerously powerful MONO, exactly as it was intended: the stupefying debut album by Texas’ heroic psychedelic point-men, the 13th Floor Elevators, on Sundazed’s uncannily accurate high-definition vinyl! The unearthly banshee howl of Roky Erickson, the blistering guitar of Stacy Sutherland and the demented electric jug of Tommy Hall haven’t sounded this scary since their glory days in the third eye of the lysergic hurricane!

"Austin's premier psychedelic jug band's 1966 debut, in glorious mono. The group's urge to drill lysergic holes in the listener's skull, as heard on the following year's Easter Everywhere, was yet to fully manifest, making this their party record, kind of, if your idea of fun is getting loaded on psychedelics, talking in spooky riddles and playing splenetic garage rock. Throughout, the squalling Roky Erickson makes Mick Jagger sound like Charles Hawtrey." —Mojo

"Why mono? Because it trashes the weedier-sounding stereo, and considering the amount of drugs you needed to have in your system to enjoy it at it's fullest back in '66, left/right stage width wouldn't have mattered. Led by Roky Erickson, a patron saint of gonzo rock and a much-loved hero of Nuggets devotees, this pioneering band of Texan misfits, in isolation from both the New York and San Francisco incubators for psychedelia, created a strain that even influenced punk a decade on" —HI-FI News

"Sundazed's adrenaline pumping vinyl reissue of The Psychedelic Sounds of the 13th Floor Elevators belongs in every serious rock record collection. It's holy grail material." —Michael Fremer, Music Angle
